I found an interesting article today detailing a particular website that will help you to find a number of contractors and get estimates directly on home improvement projects. What Katie says here, though, is of particular interest. In the world of real estate agents and selling homes, some of the simplest, most cost effective “improvement projects” are things like scraping the popcorn ceilings and repainting.
Home improvement is always a hot topic – and usually something that Realtors know a good deal about. As a Realtor, you know how important an upgraded kitchen or bath can be when listing a home, or how it pays to scrape the “popcorn” off your ceiling, or even the power of new lighting throughout the home to make it “light and bright.” When a home is picture perfect it makes it that much easier to sell, and to sell for the best price possible.”
She reveals the website to use and it could really help you to minimize the cost of fixes and upgrades for your clients, and at the same time reducing the time you or your client has to spend on finding and hiring good contractors.
